I'll be 22 in june and I was just wondering if I was the youngest person here. And when did all of you start driving... professionally I mean. Lol

We've had a few 21-year-olds pop in here recently, so you're not alone. :) I'm not driving professionally yet, but I start training with my chosen company next month. I'll be 28 in two weeks.

Well I drove for 15 years but I was 21 when I started. Here's a pic of me with my first big rig at 21 years old with my sister, neice, and nephew alongside...

I just turned 26, but when I shave people say I look 19. They say you are only as old as you feel right? So we're all probably pretty young!

Lady driver here, drove agricultural on a chauffeur license til they changed them to CDL's from 1970 to 1996. Bought a truck and teamed on and off with my other half form 1997 to present.


Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.
